He has received awards including the Knuth Prize (2000), the Sigmod E. F. Codd Innovations award (2006), and the 2016 NEC C&C Foundation Prize (with Al Aho and John Hopcroft). Ullman is also the co-recipient (with John Hopcroft) of the 2010 IEEE John von Neumann Medal, for 'laying the foundations for the fields of automata and language theory and many seminal contributions to theoretical computer science'.
Jure Leskovec is Associate Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, California. His research focuses on mining and modeling large social and information networks, their evolution, and diffusion of information and influence over them. Problems he investigates are motivated by large-scale data, the Web, and on-line media. This research has won several awards including a Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship, the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, an Okawa Foundation Fellowship, and numerous best paper awards. His research has also been featured in popular press outlets such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, MIT Technology Review, NBC, BBC, CBC, and Wired. Leskovec has authored the Stanford Network Analysis Platform (SNAP, http: //, a general purpose network analysis and graph mining library that easily scales to massive networks with hundreds of millions of nodes and billions of edges. He is also Investigator at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub. You can follow him on Twitter at @jure.
